http://www.blankdiscshop.co.uk/acatalog/SVP_Communications_Special_Offers_15.html Just bought one. Very good value for what you get ! The Pioneer 106 can write to DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, CDR and CDRW discs. DVD+/-R write-once recording is 4 speed so you can write a full 4.7GB disk in approx. 15 minutes (this will require 4x rated DVD+/-R media) Pressed DVD-ROM reading is now 12-speed (6 Speed for DVD-R-HS & 4 Speed for DVD-RW-HS) HS=High Speed DVD-R Media. CD-R write speed has been increased to 16x. High-Speed CD-RW speed has been increased to 10x. CD-ROM reading speed is 32x. Liquid-crystal tilt mechanism is employed to eliminate any decline in recording and playback precision caused by variations in the curvature and thickness of discs. Smart laser driver technology. Thanks to Pioneer's original Precision Recording Technology, the DVR-106 dramatically improves the writing precision of DVD-RW and ease-of-use. Writing performance is also improved due to the application of Distributed Real-time Defect Management This is the OEM version of the drive. It does not come in a retail box, and no software, cables, manual or installation screws are included.
